Jim Chapman Communities Wins Gold OBIE for Best Community Service Project

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Jim Chapman Communities for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Community Service Project category. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) invited Jim Chapman, president of Jim Chapman Communities and Jim Chapman Fine Homes, and Professional Builder Magazine to exhibit an active-adult decorate, single-family home at the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS), held in Orlando this past January.

Through HomeAid Atlanta, and in close cooperation with many vendors and suppliers who were also part of this IBS show home by providing goods and materials, Chapman decided to donate this brand-new home to Family Promise of Hall County, one of nine Family Promise affiliates in the greater-Atlanta area working to end the cycle of family homelessness, at one-half of the home’s cost of construction.

The show home, a well-crafted modular home by Nationwide Custom Homes, came fully furnished with all appliances and fixtures. In Hall County, this home would list for approximately $300,000.

On March 10, 2017, Family Promise of Hall County dedicated the brand-new home that now serves as a transitional home in the organization’s 90-day program that provides advisement, advocacy, and accountability for families seeking independence as they transition out of homelessness.
